Gen Asif Ghafoor, a military spokesman, said the Indian "aircrafts" crossed into the Pakistan-controlled Muzafarabad sector of Kashmir, which is split between the two countries but claimed by each in its entirety. He said Pakistan scrambled fighters and the Indian jets "released payload in haste," near Balakot, on the edge of Pakistani-ruled Kashmir.
